A pretty for my niece

Last week I completed another embroidery project, this one for my niece who is turning 16.
She wouldn't give her mother or I any ideas as to what she wanted, so I had to improvise.  I decided to make her a pretty pillowcase with some other goodies.
I'm not the seamstress my mother is by a long shot, and I was late getting her this gift, so I had to work quickly but I tried to stitch as neatly as possible.  Even tho the design was pre-stamped, it took some concentration on my part...
 I think it came out nicely - looks like it's for a lady.  Very feminine.
 I packaged it up with a sleep mask and some aromatherapy spray.  Wish I had thought to buy a gift bag...
 ...but a cereal box will do!
Happy Birthday, Miss Liv.  Hope you have the sweetest of birthdays!

What a sweet gift!! The cereal box cracked me up, though. :) Creative. I remember my mom teaching me embroidery stitches when I was pretty young. I wonder if I would remember how to do it today?
